The natural gas initiative is a partnership of the Municipality of Kincardine, the Township of Huron Kinloss and the Township of Arran Elderslie . The municipalities have been investigating the feasibility of developing a natural gas supply to the constituents of the municipalities.
Kincardine, Arran-Elderslie and Huron-Kinloss have selected Edmonton-based EPCOR Utilities Inc. as the successful proponent to bring natural gas to their South Bruce communities. The selection of EPCOR follows a 6 month competitive Request for Information process which identified multiple potential developers to construct, own and operate a new natural gas distribution utility.
The Municipalities have approved and signed a Municipal Franchise Agreement which provides EPCOR Utilities Inc. with the right to distribute natural gas within the three Municipalities.
